Microsoft pumps the brakes on Copilot AI advances in Windows 11

What you need to know

  • Microsoft recently announced it will slow down the integration of new experiences for Copilot in Windows.
  • Based on user feedback, the company will use this time to refine the tool’s experience.
  • Copilot in Windows will continue to work as usual during this phase.

Microsoft has been fully focused on integrating AI advances across its services and products after making a multi-billion dollar investment in OpenAI. The Windows operating system is a significant beneficiary of the extended partnership with the ChatGPT maker.

As you might already know, Windows 11 and 10 ships with a dedicated AI-powered assistant dubbed Microsoft Copilot (formerly Bing Chat). Copilot AI is also consistent across Microsoft Edge and Bing. In Microsoft’s recent earnings call, CEO Satya Nadella indicated Bing has surpassed over 140 million daily active users, further attributing the impressive feat partly to the platform’s new AI advances and capabilities.
